Our Pastor



Oliver was born in Peterborough, becoming a Christian when he was 17 at a local church. After studying Economics at Hull University, he moved to Scotland in 2001, where he settled for the next 14 years. During this time he worked in financial services in Glasgow, specialising in pensions. In 2010, God graciously opened the door to train for pastoral ministry, where he undertook 5 years of training with Cornhill Scotland. For the last 3 years of this training, Oliver was employed as an Assistant Minister in Stirling, before God led him to take up the role of Minister at Emmanuel Baptist Church, Sidmouth. He is married to Susan, and they have 4 children, Katie, Leah, Ethan and Chloe.
